Transformer package on Zeppelin’s Henschel FM high intensity


mixer includes an easy clean discharge option


aside after lifting for easier access and cleaning. For the same reason, the lid is also raised and turned hydrauli- cally. The package also includes a discharge with a swing-away cylinder and a hinged cover that provides improved access to all areas of the discharge.


Optimised performance Italian firm Caccia Engineering highlights energy savings on its latest equipment. It says that savings of up to 30% are possible with the latest turbomixers equipped with sensor-less vector motor inverters, together with specific software and other unspecified advanced devices. According to a company representative, the main innovation on the turbomixer design is a special thermo-refractory material applied on the container. This material, which Caccia calls TermoShield, has been developed for this type of machine to allow improved heat generation and retention during the homogenising process. Plasmec says it has received a lot of interest in its


newly optimised cooling mixers. The company claims that it is now “a straightforward task” to cool over eight batches per hour of U-PVC down from 120°C to 40°C. Redesigned water circuitry increases cooling efficiency,


“enabling a significant increase in the productivity of the cooler and, therefore, the mixing plant.” According to the Italian company, the new cooling interspace can withstand a working pressure of 2.5 bar, which is the typical pressure of a closed-circuit chiller. “This, in addition to increasing the efficiency of heat exchange, solves many critical issues typical of closed-circuit chillers,” says Managing Director Massimo Grigolon.
